Kotobian Tadau Tagazo Do Kaamatan

31st May 2007

Today, the Sabahan people celebrates Kaamatan (Harvest Festival) as a way of thanking Kinoringan (God) for the abundance of food we have in our land.

So to all my family and friends,

Kotobian Tadau Kaamatan Kuma Doid Diau

Kadaa nogi moginum ogumu, kio?
Kadaa hiivai zou doiti KL, aiso gia koruhang zou moginum doiti. LOL!

During a Kaamatan mass in our church in Kunak.
My dad is holding the gong while Rev. Fr. Nicholas beats the gong, marking the celebration of Kaamatan.

The Kadazan traditional dance, Sumazau.

    shag: Happy Kaamatan to you too.

    Kay: I miss Kunak too. And I am definitely hungry right now. :P

    Gallivanter: You got it right!! :B

    we’ve got something similar in my village. You go to church and, according to the history, the priest gives away little pieces of bread and you have to keep one at home during a year which will help you to avoid hunger :)

    I think we went back at the wrong time, should’ve waited for the Kaamatan Hilghlights. Missing the hinava and bambangan oredi.
